A New Kind of Love

Director Shavelson cut his teeth as a writer for Bob Hope and Danny Kaye. He could have done with either of those comedians in this laboured, overdressed Parisian comedy. Instead, he ended up with Mr and Mrs Method, the always earnest Newman and Woodward. She's a fashion buyer, he's a lout of a journalist. He can't stand her short hair, but ends up falling for her when she's fitted with a wig. Saint-Laurent, Cardin and Dior provided the costumes, but the script could have been written by Andy Capp.
